Drug Release Characteristics of Biodegradable Polymers for Stent Coating

스텐트 코팅용 생분해성 고분자의 약물 방출 특성

  • Published : 2003.04.01


Biodegradable polymers, poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA), poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB), and medium chain length polyhydroxyalkanoates (MCL-PHA) containing rose bengal (model drug) were coated onto the surface of stainless steel (stent materials) and their in vitro release characteristics were investigated. Drug release increased with; decreasing PLGA concentration, increasing rose bengal concentration, and Increasing dip-coating duration. The order of drug release from the polymer coating was: PHB > PLGA > MCL-PHA. These results suggest that drug release can be controlled by: changing the concentration and type of polymer, the drug concentration, and the dip-coating duration.

스텐트 재질인 stainless steel 표면에 모델 약물인 rose bengal을 포함한 생분해성 고분자 PLGA, PHB, MCL-PHA를 코팅하여 약물방출 특성을 조사하였다. PLGA의 농도가 낮을수록, rose bengal의 농도가 높을수록, dip-coating 시간이 길수록 약물방출이 증가하였으며, PHB > PLGA > MCL-PHA의 순서로 약물이 빨리 방출되었다. 이는 생분해성 고분자의 농도 및 종류, 약물의 농도, dip-coating 시간 등을 변화시켜 약물방출을 조절할 수 있음을 나타낸다.
